GATHERED WORSHIP:
Welcome 
Focusing on Who God is:
Psalm 100 
A psalm of thanksgiving.
1 Let the whole earth shout triumphantly to the Lord!
2 Serve the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we are his—
his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and bless his name.
5 For the Lord is good, and his faithful love endures forever;
his faithfulness, through all generations. (CSB)

He Has Made Me Glad Medley
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.
I’m redeemed, I’m redeemed. Praise the Lord!

What a mighty God we serve.
What a mighty God we serve.
Angels bow before Him.
Heaven and earth adore Him.
What a mighty God we serve.

I will enter His gates with thanksgiving in my heart.
I will enter His courts with praise.
I will say this is the day that the Lord has made.
I will rejoice for He has made me glad.

He has made me glad.
He has made me glad.
I will rejoice for He has made me glad.
He has made me glad.
He has made me glad.
I will rejoice for He has made me glad.

Ah, Lord God. Thou hast made the
Heavens and the earth by Thy great power.
Ah, Lord God. Thou hast made the
Heavens and the earth by Thine outstretched arms.

Nothing is too difficult for Thee.
Nothing is too difficult for Thee.
Great and mighty God.
Great in council and mighty in deed, mighty in deed.
Nothing, nothing. Absolutely nothing.
Nothing is too difficult for Thee.

This is My Father’s World
This is my Father’s world
And to my listening ears
All nature sings and round me rings
The music of the spheres

This is my Father’s world
I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees
Of skies and seas
His hands the wonders rod

This is my Father’s world
The birds their carols raise
The morning light the, lilliy white
Declare their Maker’s praise

This is my Father’s world
He shines in all that’s fare
In the rustling grass I hear him pass
He speaks to me everywhere

This is my Father’s world:
O let me ne’er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong,
God is the Ruler yet.

This is my Father’s world
The battle is not done
Jesus who died shall be satisfied,
And earth and Heav’n be one.

 Recognizing Our Need:

What A Friend We Have In Jesus
What a Friend we have in Jesus,
  All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
  Everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
  O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
  Everything to God in prayer!

Have we trials and temptations?
  Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged,
  Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful
  Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness,
  Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Are we weak and heavy-laden,
  Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge—
  Take it to the Lord in prayer;
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
  Take it to the Lord in prayer;
In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
  Thou wilt find a solace there.

Prayer

Remembering the Gospel: 
1 Peter 1:13-25
13 Therefore, with your minds ready for action, be sober-minded and set your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the desires of your former ignorance. 15 But as the one who called you is holy, you also are to be holy in all your conduct; 16 for it is written, Be holy, because I am holy. 17 If you appeal to the Father who judges impartially according to each one’s work, you are to conduct yourselves in reverence during your time living as strangers. 18 For you know that you were redeemed from your empty way of life inherited from your ancestors, not with perishable things like silver or gold, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of an unblemished and spotless lamb. 20 He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was revealed in these last times for you. 21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

22 Since you have purified yourselves by your obedience to the truth,[b] so that you show sincere brotherly love for each other, from a pure[c] heart love one another constantly, 23 because you have been born again—not of perishable seed but of imperishable—through the living and enduring word of God. 24 For
All flesh is like grass,
and all its glory like a flower of the grass.
The grass withers, and the flower falls,
25 but the word of the Lord endures forever.
And this word is the gospel that was proclaimed to you.  (CSB)

Sending to Mission:

His Eye Is On The Sparrow
Why should I feel discouraged?
And why should the shadows come?
Why should my heart feel lonely
And long for heavenly home

When Jesus is my portion
My constant friend is He
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me

I sing because I’m happy
I sing because I’m free
For His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He’s watching me

“Let not your heart be troubled,”
His tender word I hear,
And resting on His goodness,
I lose my doubt and fear;

Though by the path He leadeth,
but one step I may see;
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me

I sing because I’m happy
I sing because I’m free
For His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He’s watching me

Whenever I am tempted,
whenever clouds arise,
When songs give place to sighing,
when hope within me dies,

I draw the closer to Him,
from care He sets me free;
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me

I sing because I’m happy
I sing because I’m free
For His eye is on the sparrow

And I know He’s watching me

Benediction:
The God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, establish, strengthen, and support you after you have suffered a little while. 11 To him be dominion forever.  Amen.
1 Peter 5:10-11 (CSB)
